't change. >> cenk: president obama's campaign team, you're welcome. all right now we're going to bring in michael shure our political correspondent. i understand that we in the midst of all this campaigning do not have campaigning in some places. what are they and why? >> there are reasons he is not in certain places. he is going to be in ohio, wisconsin, iowa, colorado, one stop scheduled in new hampshire one in virginia. he does not have any stops in north carolina, nor in michigan. he doesn't have a stop in minnesota or pennsylvania. the threeness, you look at that map there, you see those three states in blue? they're going to stay blue. the president's people follow the president follow the money you know, up until now. we'll get to why money's being spent in other places. you follow the president he's not going to those states, because he knows he has them. not going to north carolina. the people in chicago don't think it's worth going there. even though they're voting. >> cenk: if you've won north carolina, you've won virginia and so many other states, you're already president o
to win. but i think the polling is misleading to show that it is obama right now than it is. it depends on who shows up, what is the weather like. a whole bunch of factors play in this what does the storm do. >> gavin: here's what people are thinking as that meet something occurring. >> yes, and we're going to know--we're still going to be in the field on monday, and the election is on tuesday. >> gavin: interesting. >> there is not going to be whole lot of value being in the field on monday because it will be too late for them to publish the results. then we'll be able to say who did you vote for in realtime in an exit poll on a whole other level. >> we're not saying that we're better but we feel just as good as phone polling and it doesn't actually cost us anything. phone polling is really expensive. >> gavin: i've spent plenty of money in polling. let me put it in perspective. when i was running for mayor, i would do a comprehensive poll. it would cost about $30,000 to 35 they had to a simple baseline poll. this is in the city. if you want to go statewide and get a broader swath you'
. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid lead in ohio, eight point lead in wisconsin, but romney aids insisted things are on the right track. >> of course she didn't. of course we are. of course we are on the right wrack. >> stephanie: we feel we are in a very good place and this race is exactly where we wanted to be. and their political director said right now their firewalls are burning. >> firewalls don't burn they prevent burning from getting through. >> i assumed there was a wall of fire. [ mocking laughter ] >> oh, my god. >> stephanie: there has been little movement since his first debate surge. several pollsters are suggesting that mitt romney is claiming the polls are wrong across the board. i imagine mitt romney -- is he still collecting unneeded canned goods at this point? that the red cross -- not specifically we don't need that please don't send that. >> yeah. ♪ there are all kinds of goods, canned goods, vacuum packed on your grocery's shelve ♪ ♪ in the value of the giant douche bag ♪ [ laughter ] >> stephanie: back with sexy l
it another way, that mitt romney is going to either win or equal, right, president obama's record with the women's vote, i think that would be -- i think the facts show that would be a disaster for american women in terms of their standing and if they go that way, it's almost -- i hate to say it it's almost they'll deserve what they get. >> right. i can't -- i certainly don't think that the democrats have not said enough about it. you know? it seems like every campaign email and video reminds women of republican's record on rape -- not record on rapes, but comments on rape and records on abortion and birth control. and you are talking about health care medicare by disproportionately affect women. women tend to outlive men, and these programs are strongly relied on by women. >> bill: there may be other issues where they are close where they stand o are they similar in position or there's not that much of a big difference, when it comes to women's issues there is no doubt about it, that president obama is absolutely on the right side and mitt romney is dead wro
signed on. that's right. if mitt romney wins the popular vote and barack obama wins the electoral college vote then i think the electoral college will blow up. it will explode. republicans won't stand for that that. >> eliot: jack welch will say its conspiracy. there are other flaws in the voting system. there rampant with the intellectual problems that we have to deal with. >> the point of origin is the constitution which does not confirm the affirmative right to vote. early on the framers passed it over to the states. everything became localized which is why we have 13,000 different voting districts with its own ballot design. ballot designed by count supervisors, while i respect them they're not designers. that's why you get the butterfly ballot. >> eliot: you're being kind to them. you're right by and large they're hard working good folks. sometimes the design errors are simply poor judgment or a mistake. but there are efforts by many people to prevent people to vote. >> absolutely. one of the things that has been so localized ie, chaotic there is too much latitude for cha canary. no
everybody is all right and it is a rare moment where a republican praises president obama. now, one republican who did not was the former fema director under george w. bush, michael brown. if you don't remember who michael brown is, you might remember this moment during the bush administration. >> there will be plenty of opportunities to help later on. right now, the immediate concern is to save lives and get food and medicine to people so we can stabilize the situation. i want to thank you all and brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. the fema director is working 24/7. [ applause ] >> cenk: well, that became a big dispute later. michael brown spoke out today and said that president obama was moving too fast during this storm which is fascinating. and he then went on to clarify he said in the context of the election, i simply said he should have waited, the storm was still forming people were debating whether it was going to be as bad as expected or not and i noted that the president should have let the governors and
still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic panic panic panic, oh, my god we're losing ohio which we need. no republican president in over 100 -- no republican has ever been elected president in over 100 years without carrying ohio. so th
of convenience. the enemy of my enemy is my friend. right now, barack obama is their biggest enemy. they're tolerating mitt romney. they already assume mitt romney is on the wrong side of every issue including this one. i don't think this flip-flop affects them. they hate romney and obama more. that's all that matters until the day after the election when we'll see them turn on romney in a big way. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: you mean when he loses. right? >> absolutely. >> jennifer: okay. >> they'll turn on him. >> jennifer: either way. >> right now they're pretending to like him but that's not going to last after he's a loser. >> jennifer: so there is the daily kos blog post today that actually talks about what disaster relief would be like in romney's world this, in fact, he were to push it down to the private sector. let's say that romney gets elected. what would a privatized fema look like? >> there's two possibilities. they're both complete disasters. the first would be to actually truly privatize it. you pay for pr
-- that are scheduled. so 17 events. obama has six events in ohio. you can see where his priorities -- three in wisconsin. two in colorado. iowa has one and one in nevada, virginia new hampshire and florida. that's all right? is that where you would be telling them to spend -- >> he wins ohio, he wins. i don't see there's any path for romney to win this without ohio. >> jennifer: if romney won everything else -- >> he could win everything else but it makes it almost impossible for him. i would be in ohio. i would be in virginia. i would be in iowa. >> jennifer: would you be in north carolina joe? >> no. >> jennifer: really? >> yeah. >> jennifer: even though early voting is -- what about florida? >> no. i would spend more time -- >> jennifer: 2 points up. >> you can block -- you know, you force the other campaign to spend money. you keep it tight and it is a chance -- there's absolutely no way he can get florida. >> the thing about this race which i've never seen before in the five presidential races i've worked on, the
, what it really is it is a chance for the right wing to finally call obama what they've always wanted to call him which is a murderer and a traitor. it is being whipped up with the election season and that's where they find themselves. >> stephanie: my favorite tweet of yours this week, this election is worth it just to watch karl rove and the final days of the campaign whine like a child about how mean and nasty obama is. you know, there's that and then your piece on fact checking fox news. it is just again talk about two sets of -- continue to insist that the president's been on an apology tour. that the president didn't call benghazi an act of terror until two weeks ago. >> all of it. all of it. and again and the reckoning is going to come on election night. so how are they -- if obama wins how -- what are they going to do? they have put so much time and effort into creating this alternative universe. i don't know how they're going to deal with it. i don't think it is going to be pleasant for the rest of the
an issue to try to deelectoralize president obama, then we have a flood here. >> jennifer: all right. thank you so much david. clearly the electoral vote looks great. the popular vote, not so much and especially if these blue voters in new jersey and new york aren't able to get to the polls, that means progressives where every you have got to vote. your vote really does matter why you ask? because the right-wing will fight his agenda at every turn. losing the popular vote gives them actually a shred of legitimacy, a leg to stand on and it's not going to matter to fox news that george bush lost the popular vote back in 2000 so bottom line even if you are in the deepest blue or deepest red, get to the polls! send in your ballots! your vote absolutely matters if you care about the president's ability to carry out his promises in his sec term. coming up bipartisan gets a much-needed shot in the arm. president obama visits new jersey with my new favorite governor, chris christie. it's time to start talking about the president's chances in florida on tuesday. we're ju
romney to knock it off. >> cenk: all right, that's pretty good. you know when he gets excited his voice goes up a little--not true. but it isn't true. both candidates have been crisscrossing the country especially president obama. i get the sense that he might go to ohio a couple of times. tell me about it. >> but a look at the rest of his campaign schedule makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for air force hub through election day. for his part mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but also hoping to win over wisconsin. he's looking to broaden the battleground map campaigning sunday and visiting new hampshire twice, the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. >> cenk: all right, now where is it edging? lucky for you we have the numbers. latest polls 50%-47% in favor of president obama in ohio! now what did i tell you was key to the election night? you're going to look out for owin. that's "o" as in ohio "w" which is, "i," in "with a and nevada. they are there with the two two first baptist church to four-point--there with two two- two- to four-
somehow -- >> you would think -- because obama is appearing presidential. he is not campaigning right now, he is standing at the podium in the west wing participating. >> but there is still a contingent who thinks he is using his kenyan voodoo power to cause this storm. >> yeah. >> of course people without power aren't going to be able to necessarily -- you can use your mobile device perhaps -- >> assuming it is a charged. >> exactly. and you have your internet connection which is probably down, your television is probably down you're going to have to use some sort of battery-powered radio to get information. >> could you come up with a battery powered radio. >> i own one. because i'm a florida native and we are trained from birth down there to be prepared for hurricanes. >> okay. >> i'm not sure i do anymore have a battery powered radio. >> wow, maybe i should get one. we live in earthquake company -- >> you can go to restoration hardware and get one of those crank ones -- >> yeah. they don't look like they cost that much -- >> well it's restoration hardware. >
regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million more oil barrels under president obama's first three years than under the last three years of george w. bush. 75% increase in drilling rigs from 29 to 2011. u.s. oil production at the highest level since 1997. and most permits for deep water drilling since '07 even though we had the bp disaster happen on his watch. you're not going to outdrill. you're not going to out-coal president obama. how is it that climb climate change working for president obama? would you brag about it? why do they do it, it's the money, lebowsky, of course it's the money. look at how much the oil company spent, $167,000 spent every day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30 worth of tax breaks that they get from the american people. and finally where did the money go? it went largely to romney any way.
're going to come out and endorse president obama and then tie it to climate change, they have to go through this. that was a back door deal because no one in their right mind would go out yesterday and say i'm endorseing president obama because of his climate change stance. that's crazy town. >> thethe number one good thing about voting early, ladies and gentlemen. >> honestly, don't you want this election over with already. >> eliot: i think the vice president got it right with that last one. more with mon current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's stance on the issues that matter to you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate. ♪ ♪ the trucks are going farther. the new 2013 ram 1500. ♪ ♪ with the best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. ♪ ♪ guts. glory. ram. >> eliot: more than ten years since the 2000 presidential election debacle, and still t
necessary steps to protect the rights of our voters. it seems like the obama team is really on the ball on this am i right? >> yes, [ inaudible ] has done a great job of frankly rebuilding a function that had been almost completely decimated by the bush administration, but we have seen since 2000 secretaries of state across the country, hyperpartism, and engaging in behavior that is anti-democratic, and goes against the spirit and the express purpose of their positions. >> stephanie: yeah. ben, absolutely, too many people have died for this right. do not let them take away your right to vote. tell people where they can go to find out the rights in their state. >> folks can go to naacp.org and text v-o-t-e to 6227 and get it that way. and you are so right. and that's one of the things that makes me most proud of our folks in florida. fully over 125,000 votes were in florida, and that's -- you got to recall we started this year with sheriff brooke threatening to throw our people in jail because the office [ inaudible ] was turned in more than 48 hours after they took it o

they wanted to cut right here on this show. then, do you believe in miracles? a week before the election, a republican actually gives credit to president obama. >> the president has been all over there. he deserves great credit. he gave me his number president white house and told me to call if i needed anything and he absolutely means it. >> cenk: but chris christy has an ulterior motive. >> is it too soon to talk about climate change or is it too late to talk about climate change? >> i never imagined that you could see glaciers this big disappearing in such a short time. >> cenk: almost no show outside of current television talking about climate change being related to sandy yesterday with that we're doubling down today. we've got the numbers to prove our case, so stay right here. it's go time.

or cable television. you have it right here on current tv, the "full court press." good to have you with us. we have a lot to cover today, including the fact that mitt romney is still accusing president obama of helping chrysler and gm move jobs to china. chrysler says it is a big lie. gm says it is a big lie. the "detroit free press" says it is a big lie. does mitt romney even care about the truth at all? obviously not. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." but here she is lisa ferguson out in los angeles. >> good morning everyone. mitt romney is headed to florida today to host events with senator marco rubio and jeb bush. he starts off the date in tampa and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american fla
pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%. i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morning as i looked a the those numbers. that's not one poll. that's a combination of polls. there is some chance now that president obama loses the popular vote, which is amazing. why is that the case? president obama had to do these things. one was the other guy sucks check. we got that. i mean, he hammered romney and did it effectively. number two we didn't do that bad over the last few years. we could have done better but it was a mess in the first place. i think he has done a fairly good job pre

silver's number from the new york times that we just talked about that president obama has a 74.4% chance of being reelected, it does seem curious, right? if this race is so close, why does nate silver give the president such a high chance of winning? well it could be the president's strong on the ground machine. it could be the obama momentum, or it just could be what is happening in the economy. now mitt romney said in an economic speech today that he is about real change big change and the president, he says is about the status quo. >> romney: our campaign is about big things because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. this election is a choice a choice between the status quo, going forward with the same policies of the last four years, or instead choosing real change. >> jennifer: now the dictionary definition of status quo means the existing state of affairs. and here is what the economic state of affairs looks like under president obama. in this case status quo means movement, progress you want evidence? okay. it was announced today
because the president has been making himself available. >> right. >> jennifer: and one of the things he did today was he went to an interview with mtv. and i want you to listen to what the president said today about gay marriage. >> obama: for us to try to legislate federally into this area is probably the wrong way to go. >> jennifer: now there were some on the left who were critical of that -- of those statements. do you think -- how do you think that is going to play with the gay democrats who have been really supportive of the president. >> i don't think they will be too happy about it. but what is their choice? this is a president who supports marriage equality, and the initiatives that are going to bring marriage equality to states, and the department of justice has been remarkable in the fight to overturn doma so i think he's on the right side here, even if he is not moving quite quickly enough. it is a much better choice than mitt romney who held secret meetings with gay republicans at a farm in virginia, and it was not a closet in the superbs, where he ap
in the electoral battleground actually have president obama winning right? >> that's exactly what he was saying. these guys follow lines and sporting events. they were great to let us come in and do this. for me, it was incredibly cool place just to be. what he was saying is that it might seem contradict arery to some when you see that gallop poll. he knows those money guys are following the polls we see at the state level by the way national polls now. the gallop poll is an outliar and one of nine or 10 national polls, the others a different story. >> cenk: the closer we get to election is you guys were alluding to, the more certain the markets become and the more certain polls become. one of the reasons the main reason the polls are not a certainty is because things can change in the next five days, but as we get close to the election, they become more and more certain don't they? >> eventually, you run out of events that are going to change minds or sway people. we basically have a weekend left before the election. the right can cry all they want and jonathan karl say i don't know what's goi
for barack obama he has got to get this right, because otherwise people will see this as political disaster and another point, you know, he has got to make sure that this isn't politicized. >> jennifer: how do you do that when you are one week before an election? >> sure. i think he has done a good job of reaching out to both republican and democratic governors and mayors. george bush -- his administration provided some help to republican governors that democratic governors didn't get. new orleans wasn't included in the federal state of emergency. >> jennifer: and james do you think, first of all that the decision to halt the campaigns, for example, that is a no-brainer, right? >> yeah absolutely. and i think particularly in the case of obama talking to folks around him, it was clear to me this was not first and foremost a political decision on his part. he just said simply i'm not running out there and raising money and going to pep rallies at the same time that i'm supposed to be overseeing what could compare to katrina. >> jennifer: well, now romney --

, but he said pressed to choose, president obama has come down on the right side of his mind. >> i'll take the endorsement. >> bill: yes. we know the big news about hurricane sandy is the biggest news we have had but hitting a week before the campaign there is also a political side to hurricane sandy. looking at bloomberg's endorsement, wouldn't you have to say if there were a political winner it was president obama. >> no question. you have chris christie who has been a top surrogate for romney on the tarmac shaking hands, praising the president for his response efforts -- >> bill: over and over. >> but more than the words was what the storm did to the narrative, which was to stop the campaign in its track, and stop the perception of romney momentum, to shift the focus from romney's rallies, and shift the discussion to what roll the government can play. >> bill: hey, dan, i want to share with margaret the newest obama ad but while dan is getting that ready -- that's the point of my column i reference is that i think hurricane sandy brought the focus on the ke
and part of the way they are going to do that is take a lot of federal money right. he's given president obama a lot of credit because he's going to get a lot of money. what happened? i thought he were against federal money. the mayor of newark new jersey rushed into a burning building literally and rescued somebody. when he gets tweets, he comes to the rescue. let me show you a tweet: >> cenk: then he says: >> somebody had called him. another one: >> cenk: and it goes on and on. anna you've got to give cory booker credit. he seems like the one politician in america who cares about the homeless people. >> he kind of puts himself at risk in the process of doing so. he's got a little bit of a hero complex. it worked out well for him in the beginning and now i'm not saying he's using it to his advantage, but he's getting positive press for it. >> he's a mad tweeter right we know that and he does seem to be sort of heroic. he's like if batman tweeted like right after taking down the joker and three henchman, he does seem to be a do-gooder. >> cenk: batman, i need your help here. that's the n

terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million more oil barrels under president obama's first three years than under the last three years of george w. bush. 75% increase in drilling rigs from 29 to 2011. u.s. oil production at the highest level since 1997. and most permits for deep water drilling since '07 even though we had the bp disaster happen on his watch. you're not going to outdrill. you're not going to out-coal president obama. how is it that climb climate change working for president obama? would you brag about it? why do they do it, it's the money, lebowsky, of course it's the money. look at how much the oil company spent, $167,000 spent every day lobbying congress. every $1 spent on lobbying is equivalent to $30 worth of tax breaks that they get from the american people. and finally where did the money go? it wen
